Wokefield park is always in decent condition. The course was empty at 8am so I managed to get round in just over 3 hours. It definitely helped with the tees being forward in my standard and pace of play.
Have played this course a few times now, generally in reasonable condition.
However £10 green fee plus £1 booking fee, shouldn't expect much I suppose.
Course is very poor condition, fairways poor, greens poor, bunkers poor.
Wouldn't pay and not worth anymore than £10.
Is a shame as a de Vere resort course, the course is a nice layout, interesting holes, doglegs, water etc. It's a shame as the course is a nice course, but awful condition.
The course and particularly the greens were in very good condition. A number of holes have water hazards so accuracy is a key to scoring well
Booked a 1044 tee time. Got to the tee at 1035 to have a putt. 3 fourballs waiting on the tee (not great). There was a four ball in front of me and due to the hold up it was already 1055. I asked them what time their tee time was and they said.....1044!!!
They informed me that they’d booked online. I’m not sure how the tee time was double booked but I waited until they’d gone before I teed off. I played 4 holes and was so fed up with the slowness that I walked back, packed my gear in the car and left. Second time that I’ve had a bad experience through Tee times online/slow play. Won’t be making a mistake for a third time!
Played this course as it’s local and got a good deal. Was aware that a large society had gone out 30 mins before my tee time. I was playing on my own and wasn’t rushing as there was no one behind. By the third hole I had caught up a four ball (last group of the society) and the play was soooo slow from then on. There was no urgency from the groups in front and they constantly stopped to chat with other groups on adjoining fairways. It really was poor etiquette and was frustrating. By the time we reached the 9th a group had caught me up despite teeing off 30mins after me. There was still no signs of the groups in front speeding up. By the 12th hole, I’d had enough and walked in, there were two other groups waiting behind me on the tee. It had taken me 3 1/2 hours to play 12 holes, all the groups in front had buggies but made no effort to speed up. Really spoiled the round for me. The course was in good condition although a couple of the greens and tees were a bit patchy. I spoke to the pro shop about the slow play and they were very apologetic which was good. Just a shame that the slow play had ruined the day
Testing but too busy
Good value for money
Plenty of parking & amenities
Hazards make you think off the tee
Driving range right next to first tee so good for a warm up
Greens & fairways condition could be a lot better
Very busy course all day so don’t expect a quick round!
Could be better
Have played here 4 times now over the last 2 years, 1st time last year, course was in good condition, lovely greens, 2nd time not quite so nice.
Then played in the spring this year, greens were awful, slow, bumpy, overall course looked scruffy. So tried again greens were quick and played better than they looked. The rest of the course generally looks scruffy, whilst it's cheap id rather pay a bit more and play a course in better condition, de Vere actually have an interesting good course here, with a hotel attached, think they need to up the standard of the golf course.
Bank Holiday Game
Course was in fairly good shape as we have had a lot of dry weather but it had rained all day the day before,greens were fast but a little bumpy but overall a good day .One slight down was the expensive breakfast really designed for hotel guests and not golfers
Good but not ideal for beginners
Nice course in a lovely setting. Considering the dry summer it has held up well. Friendly staff as always. The changing room and showers are good. And there are two bars (one in the main hotel and one next to the pro shop. I’d recommend this course for medium and low handicappers but it is challenging for learners due to the elevated greens, water hazards and rough.
Some nice holes
Obviously we were in the middle of a very dry spell spell so the course was running and running. Still decent to play though and a good test. One or two nice holes where you had a decision to make as well which is always good.
Well worth a visit
Booked through teeofftime.co.uk, exceptional value, £10 per head. A decent course but has suffered from the run of hot weather we have had.
Facilities good, clubhouse food expensive!
Staff friendly, overall a positive experience and def worth playing.
Lovely course and great facilities. Very challenging for our group who are all quite new to the game. Great experience overall
5 hour +
We were a two ball and it took over 5 hrs for the round, no Marshall to speed play up,I the course played well,
Course is good but greens were hard
It's a great course that rewards good shots but punishes bad. You need to think about your shot off the tee. If you're feeling confident then go for the tiger line. If not then play safe otherwise you'll invariably end up in the sand. Strategically positioned hazards.
Greens were very hard on the day when most other courses have been soft??
Lovely but unforgiving course
Great fun course to play on a sunny afternoon, however, if you stray even just slightly off the fairway, you'll be spending a good 5-10 minutes finding your ball in the dense rough.
Great value for money which is perfect for us university students and staff are very helpful and friendly.
Good venue, but not in great condition. Pace of play massive issue here!
As per the title, this is a decent venue and have played it before and it’s been a good knock. However on this occasion the course was in poor condition. Fairways long, green recently ‘done’ and very bobbly and inconsistent. Rough just off the fairways penal. It’s a good track, and even though it’s been a tough spring I’d expect it to have recovered better than this by early May.
Having said all that, you could forgive it, especially given the very reasonable green fee (sub £20) if it wasn’t for the pace of play. Comfortably over 5 hours for a 2 ball isn’t acceptable under any conditions. Second time I’ve experienced such a slow round here. Needs a starter and a Marshall to better manage pace of play, if you come on the wrong day it will ruin your round (I’ve been on quieter days and not had any problem - it can be done)!
Will try again later in the summer, hopefully they will have turned the course round. I’m not sure they are ever going to do anything about the pace of the round, which is a real shame.
